Will The Tribulation Begin Next Year?
Note: Although much of the timing was off in this article, there is still a number of note-worthy facts here. That is why I am including this article. It's just one more example of how everything is coming together very quickly.

What I'm writing about in today's commentary is of deep concern to me. Although I have already reported the basic content on prior posts, I feel I may not have yet put all the new information together as clearly as I should. Let me explain why.

If you've spent time on my Website, you understand the structure. I post news reports and commentary as they happen at the top of the page. So, the entry at the top is where you will find my most recent opinion. Below you will find all my earlier entries and the progression of thought that has brought me to my latest opinion.

Back to why today's subject is of concern to me. I'm beginning to strongly suspect the European Union's Euro-Mediterranean Partnership for Peace could actually be the covenant the Antichrist confirms with Israel for one week (seven year period).

You see, the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership for Peace is the cornerstone to the European Union's relationship with Israel. The goal of this agreement is to create a free trade area between the EU and 12 Mediterranean nations - including Israel.

Although it was signed in 1995, it didn't go into force until June 1, 2000. So, beginning in 2000, the EU and Israel entered into a 10-year agreement that is now the basis for the EU's peace process in the Middle East.

This means, when and if the EU becomes a new entity in 2003, the Euro-Med agreement will have to be reconfirmed by the new entity. Interestingly, at that time there will be seven years remaining for Israel and the EU to meet its goal in 2010.

In other words, the new leader of the new EU may have to confirm a covenant with Israel for seven years. And of course, for students of Bible prophecy, this could be very significant  . According to Daniel 9:27, this is exactly what the coming Antichrist is supposed to do.

But, this isn't the all of it. You see, in my book Recommendation 666, I spend some time on the Euro-Med Partnership agreement. This is because the Euro-Med was negotiated by the same person who I had just witnessed in 1999 become the EU's first High Representative of Common Foreign and Security Policy, Javier Solana.

Here's the facts:

In 1995, the Western European Union became a 10-nation alliance and, the same year, Solana negotiated the Euro-Med agreement between the EU and Israel. As I said, the goal of the agreement was to create a free trade area between the EU and Israel by 2010.

In 1999, Solana - the prior head of NATO, and the man who had restructured NATO -  was appointed the EU's High Representative, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, and Secretary general of the WEU 10-nation alliance. You could say, the first Mr. Europe.

On June 1, 2000, the Euro-Med agreement with Israel went into force. And, just four days later, on June 5, 2000, the Assembly of the WEU 10-nation alliance adopted its Recommendation 666.

Then on July 1, 2000, France - one of the 10-nations - took over the presidency of the EU. In the following six-month term, France and Solana made the WEU 10-nation alliance the military wing of the EU. And they did it by implementing WEU Assembly Recommendation 666. This is when, in my opinion, Solana's 10-nation alliance began taking over control of the EU.

Now, in 2003, the EU may become a new entity with the entire foreign policy and 10-nation military wing placed under the control of one man. And, some people believe the best man for the job is Solana.

This means, in 2003 the new leader of the new EU entity, possibly Javier Solana, may have to reconfirm the Euro-Med agreement with Israel. And in 2003, there will be seven years left to meet the 2010 goal. In other words, the EU's new leader may have to confirm a covenant with Israel for seven years.

If you know Bible prophecy, perhaps you can understand why today's commentary concerns me so deeply. If what I'm reporting today happens, by this time next year, the tribulation period may actually begin.

And once again, nobody may even notice.
